Block Party Giveaway: The Vintage Pearl

This giveaway is now closed. Check back on July 4th for the winner!

Welcome to the Simple Living Media Summer Block Party! We’ve got 20 giveaways across the entire network this week to give you plenty of chances to win!

So let’s get started with a fabulous prize from The Vintage Pearl, a family-owned company handcrafting beautiful jewelry.

The Vintage Pearl was started by mother of four Erin Edwards. She and her husband Ryan create unique handstamped necklaces, bracelets, and keepsakes using sterling silver, freshwater pearls, and birthstone crystals. Their creations are truly amazing and beautiful.

From The Vintage Pearl website:

“The Vintage Pearl began in 2007 as a creative outlet while staying home and raising our kids. It quickly blossomed into a business and continues to grow. I feel extremely blessed to be able to work while home with my kids!”

I adore this lovely necklace I received from The Vintage Pearl–wearing it throughout my day inspires me and reminds me to have courage in the midst of the small challenges that come my way.

Today Erin is generously offering one reader a $100 gift certificate to The Vintage Pearl!
